- Exhibitors will go to the Entry Office (building inside west gate off Rte. 25). There you will receive your entry tags (for your items) and identify to the clerk any changes, deletions, etc. so they can be made before leaving the office. NOTE: Be knowledgeable of what items you brought.
- Take your tags and items to the appropriate building (Arts & Crafts Building, or Agricultural Hall) and appropriate location within the building. A Chairperson or helper will assist in receiving your tags and items.
